How Himawari Inherited Naruto’s Powers, Explained


  • Himawari Uzumaki’s powers come from her father Naruto’s Tailed Beast abilities, making her a force to be reckoned with in Boruto.
  • With immense potential as a ninja, Himawari may tap into powers like Kurama Chakra Mode or even Six Paths Sage Mode like her father.
  • Himawari’s growth as a ninja will be showcased in upcoming chapters, making her a key player in the fight against the Shinju.

Naruto’s daughter, Himawari Uzumaki appears to be at the forefront of things in Boruto: Two Blue Vortex at the moment. While she was not involved in the main plot all that much in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, towards the end of it, there were clear signs that the author wanted to involve her in the story more, and the groundwork was laid for her to get a bigger role in the sequel story.


Boruto: The Return Of Six Paths Sage Mode Naruto, Explained

This is how Naruto will regain his Six Paths Sage Mode in Boruto TBV.

As Boruto’s timeskip kicked off and the characters returned stronger than ever before, fans also got a proper look at Himawari Uzumaki. More recently, it was finally confirmed in the story that Himawari is quite powerful and that the source of her powers is the same ability that her father once carried, and that is, Tailed Beasts powers.

Himawari’s Innate Gifts

Himawari Uzumaki is the daughter of Naruto Uzumaki and his bloodline alone makes her one of the most talented ninjas to have ever lived. Naruto Uzumaki, although not a genius when he was a kid, turned out to be one of the most incredible ninjas to have ever lived. His powers are unlike any other that has existed in the Naruto world, and he simply reigns supreme as the strongest of all time. Fans know him to have mastered all five nature transformations, and gained Sage Mode. At the same time, Naruto Uzumaki also has the chakra of Kurama, and that boosted his strength tremendously. Naruto also has access to Six Paths Powers, which he received directly from the Sage of Six Paths in the Fourth Great Ninja War. Ever since then, he has only gotten stronger, that is, until Kurama was eventually ripped from his body in Boruto.

Hinata Hyuga is not one to be underestimated either. Himawari’s mom was a proud warrior of the Hyuga clan and, by the end of the 4th Great Ninja War, she became an accomplished ninja. She was a master of the Byakugan, and her skill could be compared to Neji. In The Last: Naruto the Movie, fans got to see Hinata inherit some of Hamura’s very own chakra, and that was truly a special moment for her. Both Naruto and Hinata bore close ties to the Otsutsuki, and that is one of the biggest reasons why both Boruto and Himawari are blessed with immense talent.

Himawari’s Tailed Beast Powers

Himawari was not all that involved in the Boruto series’ main plot up until recently. However, now, it is beyond any doubt that she possesses tremendous powers that she has inherited from Naruto. In Boruto: Two Blue Vortex’s recent chapter, fans got to see the Shinju on the move. As soon as they got to Konoha, the Shinju explained that they only came to this village because they were seeking out Naruto. Naruto himself was a Jinchuriki and the Shinju felt the presence of the Tailed Beasts inside of him. This is the chakra that they were hunting down, and the signature that they knew that Naruto had matched with it. However, at the end of the trail, they found only Himawari. This made perfect sense, given that Naruto was sealed away in the dimension of Daikokuten, while Himawari, who is his daughter, possesses some of his powers. As has been confirmed in the series, Himawari has inherited the powers of her father, and that is what makes her truly special. The whiskers that she carries on her cheeks might just be a sign of the fact that her dad’s chakra runs through her veins too.

In the case of Himawari, judging by the way the Shinju were talking about her, it appears that she already actually has the same power as Naruto Uzumaki. This essentially means that she has the power of the Nine Tails inside of her, since that was the vast majority of the power that Naruto held as well. This Nine Tails either manifested itself as her chakra, having mixed with her own, or, there might actually be a miniature version of the Nine-Tails inside of her that has, since then, grown considerably. These are the two ways that the author can connect her to Naruto.

Jura is the most powerful of the Shinju in Boruto TBV.

Of course, there is also a chance that Himawari actually has a chakra of all nine Tailed Beasts. This is possible since Naruto had the chakra of all nine Tailed Beasts before Himawari was conceived and, thus, the chakra of all of them could have actually been passed on to her. In this case, Himawari would then become the Jinchuriki of the 10 Tails, in a way.

Himawari’s Potential As A Ninja

Clearly, Himawari already possesses boundless potential as a ninja. She is the daughter of Naruto Uzumaki, after all, and that in itself makes her extremely talented. Himawari being an Uzumaki simply means that she has a massive chakra pool. Her stamina is most likely going to be top-notch, and added to that is the fact that she possesses the power of the Tailed Beasts. Depending on what power she truly carries, Himawari was always going to be a monster in combat. If Himawari carries the power of the Nine-Tails, just like Naruto, then, it is highly likely that, at some point later down the line, she will gain access to powers such as Kurama Chakra Mode.

If she has the power of all nine Tailed Beasts, then, she could potentially even tap into the power of Six Paths and unlock Six Paths Sage Mode, which is one of Naruto’s strongest abilities. That, when combined with her power to activate the Byakugan, puts her on an entirely different level when compared to her father.

It also makes perfect sense, given that Daemon recently commented on the fact that Himawari possessed enough power to match him in battle, and he believed her talent to be even greater than that of Boruto. That in itself is proof of the fact that she possesses enough talent to go on and match the likes of the Shinju in battle, and later down the line, become one of the strongest Ninjas to have ever lived.

Thankfully, fans will most definitely get to see more Himawari chapters of Boruto, as she seems to be at the center of things. Her powers, if they are tested, will likely be brought to the surface and fans will finally get an idea of what a monstrous ninja she truly is. Sadly, Naruto won’t be there to witness his daughter’s growth, however, she will surely make him proud in combat. Fans simply need to sit back and wait until Boruto illustrates Himawari tapping into her potential and bringing out her full power in the incredible fight against the Shinju. As she grows, she is going to get the chance to develop her powers even further and reach unprecedented levels as a ninja.

Boruto is available to read via Viz Media. The series can be read by the fans officially and for free on the Shonen Jump and the Manga Plus app. The release date for the next chapter of Boruto, Boruto: Two Blue Vortex chapter 9, is set to be April 20, 2024.
